"I was thinking the same, used to be a guy called Mick I believe who made all the bottles, maybe he left and took all the knowledge with him :-D. I don’t think they validate much to be honest given the chrome iO and smart Astro in particular…"

Telstar legs off center

"They changed it a couple of years ago, now the legs arnt evenly spaced anymore. Really bad change in my opinion, makes the whole thing look wonky. Probably the only reason is it fits in the box better."

Paul replied to Paul's discussion GU10 Mathmos Telstar - Stuck Bulb

Arne replied to Paul's discussion GU10 Mathmos Telstar - Stuck Bulb
"The only thing I can imagine is that whenever you turn the lamp on/off there is a small spark at the pins of the bulb and over time it becomes sort of a welded spot. I've had switches do that. I would try lubrication like wd40 spray and stay…"

GU10 Mathmos Telstar - Stuck Bulb

Hi AllAll of my GU10 Telstars have stuck bulbs, has anyone else had this issue? I've tried litrally everything. Sometimes they get stuck stright away, sometimes I can change the bulb once or twice before thet get stuck in the base. I've seen a couple of reviews on Amazon saying the same so I guess it happens but all of mine are useless at the moment :(. Thanks for any help! See More

Black iO Pink Blue

"It is a really dark bottle but I kind of like that. Still might do some colour swaps also. Yellow/orange is the brightest but probably my least favourite. "

Black iO Pink Blue

"I’m really not enjoying this colour. Far too dark! I’ve ordered a yellow and orange bottle do I can swap the liquids. Have the turquoise in yellow liquid and orange wax in the pink liquid."
